Their bright citrus flavor is a great complement to lean chicken in this quick and simple dinner recipe.

Acorn, Apple and Apricot Chicken

My weekly shopping trip last week yielded two very pretty acorn squash. Squash is at its peak right now and there were so many to choose from. The acorn squash looked more appealing than the rest so I chose them. One was a deep orange gold squash and the other a beautifully striped carnival squash. They were too hard to resist, but once I got them home it seemed wrong to serve them in the non-showy, yet traditional, baked and buttered way.

I thought about it and decided stuffed would be good, but again, the usual stuffings didn't appeal to me. I had some dried apricots and Granny Smith apples lurking in the kitchen with nowhere else to go and a few chicken breasts that needed to be used so I improvised and this is the resulting, and delicious, dish.

No-cook and grilling recipes are something you'll be hearing from me about all summer long. Not only do I appreciate the no-cook solution, I also enjoy the ease of few ingredients, and any recipe that passes those two requirements is high on my list of "must try." Recipes that have five or less ingredients are great, but a mere three is awesome, especially if there's no cooking involved.
